Join us for the opening reception of Twist/Turn – Halley Cheng Solo Exhibition.

In subtle response to oppositional, fragmented positions, Halley Cheng investigates a city where the players may be caught in self-delusion. A theatre stage which is continually turning, twisting and changing, and where truth is hard to find.

Beijing-based novelist Chan Koonchung makes reference to the popular analogy of China as a Rubik’s Cube, a complex machine with the Party at its core, immutable and fixed, despite sudden and immediate changes to the surface of the cube. The title of Halley Cheng’s new show is partly inspired by this metaphor. The artist tests its relevance to political movements and inter-generational conflict. He reflects on polarizing, geometric shifts: an opaque world of hard edges and limited choices.

Galerie Ora-Ora’s new show depicts shattered realities and real-life illusions. The cube is rotating, and we are twisting and turning with it.
